A reader named Michelle has a son named Saylor Dorian. She’s expecting a baby girl in May and would like some name suggestions. She says:
We originally picked shiloh for a girl but we aren’t liking how popular it’s getting [due to a celebrity finding it first..grrr] we want a unique name that’s still ‘easy on the ears’ as in easy to get used to. I try to stay away from the too feminine popular vowel names like ava, bella, etc… though we like them we don’t want a trendy name like piper, stella, etc…
We are currently tossing around names like vega, remy…. though what i loved about shiloh was that O ending.. but we are open to whatever.
First let’s try to come up some more o-endings. How about:
Callisto Calypso Clio Flo (Flora/Florence) Jo (Josie/Josephine) Juno
Leo (Leona) Margot Marlow Meadow Mo (Maureen) Willow
And here are some other names that came to mind:
Audra Briar Darcy Dylan Emery Fiona Gillian Greer
Heidi Ione Jaya Lotus Lyra Mina Morgan Nadia
Naomi Nova Phoebe Rory Tess Violet Vita Zillah
Which of the above do you like best for Saylor’s sister? What other girl names would you suggest to Michelle?
A reader named Heath is expecting his third child, a boy, and would like some name suggestions. Here’s what he says:
I’m Heath, wife is Aspen, daughter is Channing and son is Deacon so we’re looking for a name that most kids won’t have but also want something that isn’t feminine, will get him picked on or doesn’t sound like we are trying too hard.
Here are some of the names they’ve been considering:
My favorite is Justice but that has no chance with my wife. She likes Ridge but I quickly vetoed that. Her favorite is Easton but I was looking for something more. Some others that we have thought about is Beckett, Kingston or Tate but again I’m not overly thrilled.
Many of the names above come from surnames, so that’s what I focused on as I brainstormed:
Baron Bridger Brogan Corbin Dax Edison Evander Ezra Felix Finn Fletcher
Franklin Fulton Garrison Graham Griffin Grover Hawthorn Jasper Lachlan Lawson Lennon
